General Editorials or Opinions on kart racing related subjects

Support the Brand!

I share my opinion on branding and why it is important to karting, the companies, the promoters, to Norcal Karters, and for the kart racer.

I have also started an official conversation thread on www.kartpulse.com – https://forums.kartpulse.com/t/support-the-branding/4334?u=norcal_karters

I want to invite you to join the discussion. I also want to stress the importance of supporting your favorite kart shop, kart race series, promoters, brand, track, or media sites with the purchase of apparel or decals. To take it a step further, even just a donation for these companies.

Have a listen and post your thoughts.
